Michigan loses 4-star DE Corey Malone-Hatcher to a medical retirement



Michigan received some bad news Tuesday as four-star defensive end recruit Corey Malone-Hatcher announced he’s retiring from football due to a lingering Achilles injury which he originally suffered in 2015.

A class of 2017 recruit for Michigan, Malone-Hatcher was rated as the 297th best prospect in the country, the 31st best defensive end and the second best player at the position for the Wolverines. Needless to say his retirement does hurt Michigan’s depth on the line as he could’ve made an immediate impact in a position area for Harbaugh’s squad that has some holes to fill.

A St. Joseph High School alum, Malone-Hatcher originally committed to Michigan in June of last year and was an early enrollee this past January.

As far as Malone-Hatcher’s future goes, he’ll remain at the University and continue his schooling. Despite the bad news surrounding his football career, Malone-Hatcher will be able to keep his scholarship due to a medical disqualification.

Outside of Malone-Hatcher Rashan Gary And Carlo Kemp remain the other high end prospects who are expected to make a big impact this season for the Wolverines.
